Abstract:

An investigation was carried out at ICAR-National Research Centre on Seed Spices, Ajmer, Rajasthan during Rabi season 2016-17 to ascertain the suitable sowing date, fertilizers doses and weedicide for quality production of fenugreek variety AFg-3. Result illustrated that significantly higher plant height (70.10 cm), per plant primary branches (4.64), secondary branches (3.86), nodules (4.90), seed yield (1800 kg ha-1) and biological yield (5755.55 kg ha-1) were recorded in 30th October sown crop as compared to 15th October and 15th November sowing dates. Irrespective of sowing dates, the application of NPK level (F3) 50:50:25 kg ha-1 recoded highest plant height (67.57 cm), per plant primary branches (4.33), secondary branches (3.28), nodules (3.72), seed yield (1675.92 kg ha-1) and biological yield (5333.32 kg ha-1). The pre-emergence application of oxadiargyl @ 75g a.i. ha-1 provided more plant height (65.60cm), per plant primary branches (4.23), secondary branches (3.08), nodules (4.03), weed counts (47.88 and 65.14 weeds/m2 area at 45 and 90 DAS, respectively), seed yield (1643.22 kg ha-1) and biological yield (5027.16 kg ha-1). The combined effect of the treatments D2xF3xW2 given maximum plant height (72.33cm), number of primary and secondary branches (5.23 and 4.33), pods per plant (42.36), seed yield (2511.13 kg ha-1), gross return (Rs.158934 ha-1), net return (109632
ha-1) and BCR (3.22).
